Contractor Safety

Columbia University Irving Medical Center has developed compliance guidelines to ensure a safe and healthy environment for anyone performing services on campus. If you are a contractor, consultant, or a member of a maintenance company, these guidelines are for you.

It is each company’s responsibility to comply with the codes and standards that govern their industry in addition to our compliance guidelines. All partners must review our guidelines and submit evidence, via the acknowledgement form located at the end of the document, to their project manager, CUIMC liaison, or Campus Life Safety and Regulatory Compliance. These forms are maintained on file in the compliance office.

We update these guidelines periodically to reflect changes in policies, lessons learned from incidents, code changes, and new restrictions from the New York City Fire Department and other regulatory agencies.

Our most up-to-date guidelines will be posted soon.
